Histology services – histology is the study of microscopic structure of tissues. We offer a wide range of histology services, from routine procedures to more highly specialized techniques, including tissue fixation, processing, sectioning, staining, immunohistochemistry, and in situ hybridization. All histological methods and procedures were devised to best preserve the cellular detail of a tissue as close to life as possible and our histotechnologists are highly trained.
For specimens received as fresh biopsies, tissue processing is the first step before any downstream histopathology evaluations.
Tissue embedding and sectioning – After the processing cycle, each cassette of tissue is embedded one at a time. Appropriate care is taken for orienting the samples correctly, and the paraffin block is fully formed. We have both manual and automated microtomes for sectioning a block.
Companion Diagnostic experience – Our scientific experts provide you with an optimal path to co-develop your companion diagnostic with clinical development of the therapeutic, regulatory submission and market launch. Our integrated approach is designed so you optimize time to market and commercial success. Learn more about our companion diagnostic capabilities.
H&E Staining & FISH and IHC services – Hematoxylin & Eosin (H&E) stain is one of the most commonly used stains and is often paired with other common downstream testing like immunohistochemistry (IHC), in-situ hybridization (FISH) and Molecular testing. An IHC test is used to detect the presence or absence and localization of specific proteins by using antibodies. We offer both manual and automated IHC staining on the latest commercial platforms.
Innovation– Our digital pathology solutions promote faster, more collaborative analysis through the use of innovative, leading edge products and services to enable communication of richer efficacy signals faster and more cost-effectively. Learn more about our digital pathology offering.
